THE BAD GUY: Kobe Bryant
COMPLEX SAYS: Take one of the winningest franchises in NBA history, build a new dynasty around the era's biggest free agency acquisition and one of the greatest (and most cocky) players in NBA history. Add annoying feisty characters like Rick Fox and Derek Fisher in addition to a dirty enforcer like Robert Horry—now you've got the 2001-02 Lakers. Dudes knew they were good and could win even when every possible sign pointed to them losing. Such was the case here in the 2002 Western Conference finals when Horry's shot—and according to Tim Donaghy, some help from the refs later on in Game 6—put the Lake Show on track to their third straight title. It's alright Kings fans, at least y'all are still in Sacramento!
